Westside-Northwest Anatomic and Clinical Pathology residents will interact with other learners from the HCA East Florida Graduate Medical Education Consortium ACGME-accredited Internal Medicine and General Surgery Residency Programs. Under the governance of the East Florida Division, as the sponsoring institution, Anatomic and Clinical Pathology residents will benefit from the presence of other learners through the fostering of an educational community and clinical experiences. This community will allow for interaction between specialties and the elevation of shared conferences and research days. The Program Director will be responsible for ensuring adequate volumes are available to for Anatomic and Clinical Pathology residents to attain their required volumes for graduation. Program evaluations will incorporate questions regarding the availability of resources for continuous monitoring. In the event the presence of other learners negatively impacts the educational experience of the Anatomic and Clinical Pathology residents, the Program Director will report this to the DIO who will assist in creating a solution that benefits all learners.
